World's largest video game controller unveiled in London
This here, is the world largest video game controller. It is a NES controller, and weighs in at a hefty 265 pounds. It is 12 feet wide, and is fully usable. Meaning, you can actually use this as a controller. You'll need more than one person, though. And you'll need good coordination and teamwork to play something that needs accuracy and good timing. The device also cost a lot of money to build. At ~$6,000 is the price area. Want some more info? Here's some more. The massive controller was designed by Ben Allen, an engineering student at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. The controller is currently on display at Liverpool St. station in London to promote the new edition of the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition, meaning it has official status as the world's largest video game controller. The device is fully working.
Below is an awesome video showing it off.
